Earlier in the week we were "Up North" vacationing with my SIL and her family at a cottage they rented for the week. Hubby went water skiing and tubing while I was photographer and spotter. One goal was to get SIL's entire family (3 kids ranging in age from 8 to 16, SIL, and BIL holding a 3 year old) up on water skis so I could get a picture for them to use for their Christmas card. It took several tries but it was a success!
Besides going out on the boat, I finished one book and read another from front to back. I also finished the first portion of Caramello...265 stitches. Now I'm ready to start the fan and feather portion.
What would a vacation be without checking out the local quilt shop?!?! I bought 3 charm packs of Adoring, 2 hanks of yarn, and two 40" needles - one size 2 and the other size 3 (so I have more room when I knit shawls).
When we got back, we were surprised to see that someone else had come back.....our duck. He had been gone for over a month b/c he molted his flight feathers. We think he had been spending the night at one of the neighbor's ponds and must not have been able to fly back home. (Guess for a duck it would have been a pretty long walk.) We're glad he remembered where home was once he could fly again. The goose is happy to have her buddy back too.
